1 and 1/2 cups oats

2.  In a microwave-safe medium bowl, melt 2 sticks of butter.  Add in:

1/4 cup molasses
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
Then add in:

3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried tart cherries

4.  Scoop tablespoon amounts onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.  Press them down slightly (they won’t spread too much like your typical cookie).  Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 13 minutes.

5.  Let them cool on the baking sheet, then serve and enjoy!

Pro Tip: They taste even better the second day, if you can wait that long…
